Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Chinooks "Blizzard" and the "Sling King" in Action @GLV-V

Post by Redskin301 »

All,

Had a fantastic set last night with the 298 Sqn RNLAF at the GLV-V. Two Chinooks "Blizzard" and the "Sling King" came
by to make duo landings in the sand. unfortunately the Chinooks kept a bit distance due to a small communication problem.
However, the soft light from 2015LT to 2100LT was incredible. In the summer months this is the best time of the day. I have
gone pretty extreme with the shutter speeds, there are pictures taken with 1/60 sec. Nice to catch our green Chinooks
while it is still possible!
